Hi guys,

please help asap if you can, have a sick peacock.

As stated in the subject line, he has foamy watery eyes and is keeping them shut a lot.
Head/eye area is not really swollen .

He's shaking his head side to side and opening his beak as if to try and swallow a piece of bread that is too large for him .
He also has been lightly " beating" his beak on the ground some -almost like he's trying to sharpen his beak but for sure that's not what he's trying to accomplish here.

As of now am starting him on Tylan in the water, 1/8 tsp. per gallon for the whole flock of about 15 ( includiing some guineas)

Not sure if that's the correct dose per gallon so just went for it .
Don't have enough birds here to justify mixing a stock solution really .
Thanks if you can help.

Can you syringe some of the mix down his throat?

thanks for getting back featherhead. Am restlessly waiting for my hubby to get home from work so he can hold the bird for me while I try that.

While youy have a hold of him, flush his eye with saline solution (1TBS/1cup water).

ok, great idea and thanks !
He seems a bit better today and his eyes look a lot better.
Head shaking and opening his beak still going on some though and he's not as energetic as he should be.
Keeping him and the whole flock on Tylan -will do that for 5 days.
Not sure what I'm dealing with here but it seems to be helping. Have administered to him via a syringe 2x now along with a wormer and some vitamins and electrolytes-keeping my fingers crossed he'll be 100 % soon.
Thanks again Sonoita and featherhead !
